The daytime running lights on the 2006 Corolla are a safety feature. They are designed to make it easier for other drivers to see the vehicle.
Daytime running lights
How do you disable the DRLs on a 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor?
there's a fuse in the fusebox I have a 1997 gmc and that worked for me
engage the parking brake , or shut the engine off
On my 2005 just turn the light switch all the way clockwise when looking at the end of the lever on the stock( the left hand lever).
If You want them off and you have auto lights turn off the auto to OFF. But i would keep it on Auto because it is so much eayser to see during the day. Also if you have fog lights i would turn those on. They help alot at night.
2004 Ford E-250 Van (also reported to work on 2006 E-250)Loosen this shroud by removing the 4 clips shown.photo Pop the air inlet tube out of the shroud, rotate it up and out of the way.photo Lift the shroud up. Behind it you will see the Daytime Running Light module. Unplug the gray connector.photo Tape up the connectors to keep water out.photo Put everything back together. This completely disables the Daytime Running Lights. The headlights still work manually and I have no other problems after doing this
rear lights and dash lights should be on the same fuse, check your owners manual if you have it.

To the best of my knowledge all Highlanders are equipped with Daytime Running Lights (DRLs). In Canada they are required by law to be equipped with them HOWEVER - there is no indication what country you are writing from or what level of "trim" your Highlander is, and your particular model may not be, for one reason or another. Check your Owner's Manual if you still have it, or simply call your local Toyota dealer.
